A fruit harvest like no other!

Last Sunday, a dozen or so FF volunteers joined Backyard Bounty at a private orchard in Santa Barbara to pick and box over 7,000lbs of Seedless Grade A Mandarin Oranges which were shared amongst several pantries and locations – all across So CAL! A big shoutout of THANKS to Jim and Backyard Bounty for inviting FF to join in the harvesting and to all the FF volunteers who made it up 2 Santa Barbara to help. Amazing work!

Our last fruit pick of 2009 will be this coming Sunday 12/27 in Santa Barbara as we have been invited back for one more day of fruit harvesting (we call it FRUIT RESCUE) 🙂

Grab a friend, family member (only 18 and over – sorry!) and join us between 9:30am and 2:00pm this Sunday as every hand will make a huge difference! You can pick/sort/box for a few hours, then go wine tasting or playing in downtown SB…we need you – the fruit needs you – hungry families need you! RSVP to carl@foodforward.org
